Romantic Getaway Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I got away for a long weekend. Loved the location and the convenience to the beach and the town. Loved the bike rides, walks on the beach and the sunsets. It was the perfect set up for a couple looking to relax and get away for a few days! We ate at the Cowgirl Kitchen and had a wonderful meal. I would definitely come back to this property.

The Calypso carriage house met every expectation! It is beautiful both inside and out.

  • 5 of 5

The location to the beach, pool as well as dining and shopping can't be beat. You don't have to drive anywhere once you arrive unless you want to. The two bicycles that come with the carriage house are a nice addition. Thank you for the wonderful stay and I look forward to the next visit!

Fantastic carriage house.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house. The wood throughout the residence is some of the nicest I've ever seen. It even smells terrific. Appliances are all excellent. The decor is tasteful and elegant. This place is quite simply one of the best deals you can find. My only observation for some improvement is that the tile in the shower is starting to show some wear and tear. Regardless of that my wife and I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Great spot for a couple!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this carriage house. The house was perfectly clean when we arrived, and was nicely trimmed out for new guests. They included new dish soap, laundry pods, dishwasher individual pods, a new dish sponge, and individual sample-size shampoo, conditioner and soap. There was a nice binder of information for guests regarding the house specifics and the surrounding area. We have been to Rosemary Beach and 30A before, but we still referenced the guide. We had some trouble with one of our bikes (one of the bikes had a flat tire with a hole), so we reached out to the property manager. We received a response within 10 minutes, and the bike was fixed by the next afternoon. The house was not lacking for anything we needed. In terms of location, it was perfect. Just two blocks from the main square and only a block from the nearest beach walkover - yet still surprisingly quiet and little traffic. Very convenient for running back to the carriage house, when needed. The nearest beach walkover only has stairs (walkover H), but the next one (walkover G) has a ramp and isn't far - if that is important. The carriage house is a great size for a couple, and even though there is a sofa and a blow-up mattress, it would have felt tight had my 4-year old daughter been in tow. The place has a spiral staircase, which again was fine with two adults, but probably not preferable with small children. Otherwise, we had a great stay and we would definitely stay here again, or with another home managed by Barefoot.

Highly Recommend Calypso!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Calypso in Rosemary Beach. This carriage home was so beautiful and very well-appointed with everything you would need. Barefoot was very helpful and easy to work with. The free bicycles were a highlight and we enjoyed exploring the community and surrounding area. The location was more than perfect: close to the beach, community pools and shops / restaurants. We would highly recommend this carriage home to anyone looking for a great Rosemary Beach trip!

So serene

  • 5 of 5

This carriage house is so convenient to the beach and to central Rosemary restaurants and shopping. The bed and lofted bedroom is a cozy nest with all white curtains and bedding and is ridiculously divine. Everything is so clean and perfectly decorated which is exactly what I want on vacation because I want to stay somewhere even nicer than my house, and this definitely did not disappoint. White linen chairs and couch with a subtle ivory accents: LOVE. I only wish we had been able to stay longer. Perfect place for our 5 year anniversary!
